Spotify playlist: Alfredo at his Balearic best

The legend lays down his best tracks.

One of the blueprint makers of the Balearic sound as well as an "original Ibiza DJ" is no doubt Alfredo Fiorito. Many clubbers see him as the undisputed godfather of the White Isle's club scene, having held historic residencies in Amnesia, Pacha, Manumission and We Love Sundays at Space.

Without Alfredo, the sound of Ibiza - some may suggest the world's as well - would sound very different. From his beginnings in 1984, he has inspired generations of DJs to explore the realms of unconventional musical blending.

One famous example would be a group of four DJs who attended one of Alfredo's seven-hour sets at Amnesia in 1987. After that summertime visit, Danny Rampling, Paul Oakenfold, Nicky Holloway and Johnny Walker were inspired to start organizing raves in the UK, which contributed to the explosion of acid house culture.

His deeply eclectic sets call on all forms of disco, dub, afro, pop, soul, house and everything in-between. The brilliance of his record digging and famously steamy selections encompass the true essence of the hedonistic and inclusive spirit of Ibiza.

Today the time-honoured DJ spends his time playing festivals and gigs around the world notably Balearic Beat Up On The Roof and Number 90 Festival. On the island, you can catch him seeing off those summer days with sunset sessions at Hostal La Torre.

For 2020, Alfredo has laid out a collection of his best tracks in a brand new Spotify playlist in collaboration with The Fina Agency. A blend of Balearic eccentricity and paradisiacal vibes, the selections below will let you carry you away into a dreamy place. Head here to subscribe.
